Did you have any luck with this?
I've made a bender before, but only for smaller diameter rack tubing.
Have recently won an auction that has 3 different benders in it and am hoping I'll be able to use one for handlebars.
The one in the blue bucket is what I wanted but think the one in the red is the same as the hilmor you were looking at getting. If you did end up finding one, I'd love to know how you went.
No, I kept looking for a deal in a Hilmor but didn’t find any that were close enough to go collect.
I tried one of the chunkier, long handled 15/22mm conduit benders but it was made of some type of cheese and just broke and that was trying to bend stuff that was too thin walled to make handle bars.
Then we sold our car and I had some money to play with so I bought a Tubela model 3.
I’m pretty sure I’ll never reach the limits of it!
Made 3 handlebars for myself out of mild steel so far. Just trying to get my head round placing the bends and stuff then I’ll move to cromo.
